Seafood Festival

This past weekend I had the opportunity to work at the Seafood Festival as one of my August beach events. I had not only never been before, but I had also never heard if it. It was a very popular event, when I got there, it was full of people. Held at the fish pier where the Save the Harbor offices are held, was the massive attraction that consisted in multitudes of vendors selling their respective food. This ranged from seafood like fish, shrimp, lobster and crab, to some things more common like ice cream and hamburgers.

The event offered a lot more than just the food though, especially to the kids. Music was playing the entire time. Activities like face-painting, Japanese writing and origami were all part of the festival. For Save the Harbor, we were fish printing with flounders. This consisted of us spraying colored ink on the face side of the fish, and placing paper over it to get the print. A lot of them came out really good. We had extra paper from the prints, and I began drawing on it for my own amusement. Others took notice and upon request I drew the flounder that we had been printing with. All in all, I had a good time at the Seafood Festival.
